WEAK BUY
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

Analysts generally have it as a hold.  Telecom is cheap to him.  They have been underperforming for almost a year.  IYZ-N reflects the telecom sector and he has been buying it.  He likes it here and is in an accumulation here.  He prefers the ETF to one company.  He does not know if VZ-N will be a winner over the boarder sector.

WEAK BUY
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

The US are down to 4 telecoms and were out of favour as they were bond proxies.  You are getting 5% yield but not price appreciation.  It is getting harder to get new subscribers.  It is a safety stock.  People buy it when they want income.

COMMENT
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

One of the top 10 most widely held stocks in America. The average dividend is over 4%, and he would guess people like it because of its huge dividend. Over the last 10 years, the average annualized growth on the 10 most widely held stocks was 2.6%, not very good in a market which has done considerably better than that. Dividend growth is more important than the average dividend yield, so if a company hasn’t raised the dividend in 10 years, that is generally not a stock you want to buy.

(Market Call Minute.) These telephone stocks just go sideways. You collect the dividend. If you buy it low and sell it high when ever you pull up the chart, you are good.

SELL
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

An intensely competitive industry. You have T-Mobile (TMUS-Q) really kicking up with strong competition. Unlimited data has greatly reduced churn, and there are fewer pricing levers and margin levers to pull.

DON'T BUY
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

The dividends are being covered now.  There is a lot of change in the sector.  If you want to take a chance on them working through it, okay, but he is not.  He does not participate in the sector.

COMMENT
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

Like Bell Canada (BC-T), this pays a big dividend. It has been a little weak, but did report slightly stronger than expected earnings. The outlook is sort of flattish. You own this for its dividend. If you are a Canadian investor, you might as well own Bell, and get the dividend tax credit, not pay double taxation by paying US taxes.

BUY
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

This is one he would be buying here. You don’t have to worry about the dividend. A lot of the pressure was about them buying the Yahoo position. The other part of this company that is much more difficult is that they are one of the ones that really don’t have that Time Warner aspect of it where everybody wants them to buy something to fill that gap in their portfolio.

COMMENT
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

The dividend yield is great, and that usually forms half the return you should expect to earn. Telcos are going through radical and rampant evolution and change. The exceptionally disruptive players in the US is “creaming pricing”, and a lot of money needs to be invested to remain competitive. Cell phone penetration is very high. There is a lot of technological disruption. As long as rates stay low, this is okay, but it is not a fast-growing area.

DON'T BUY
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

They are having troubles like AT&T.  TMUS-Q has unlimited usage and that has been taking a lot of customers away.  Right now it is a race to the bottom.  He would prefer Canadian telecom companies.

COMMENT
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

Had a bad quarter. Adjusted EPS was $.95, compared to $1.06 a year ago. This was really because of competition. US has now become Europe, because everybody is fighting over that last foot in the door and trying to come up with products that people are going to take, as well as spend money on. The dividend yield is high. The dividend increase was not great. You are almost getting a bond -like yield, so you are somewhat better to own the bonds than the stock, because you rate higher in the corporate chain, but you are getting the same kind of payout. He has been buying their bonds as opposed to their stocks.

BUY
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

This is going to have a low, very consistent return. One of the better ones in that it has a higher Return on Capital than most. Not huge, about 6% as opposed to 4% and 5%, but that is enough in the telecom to make it just a little better than most, and worth getting into. 5% yield with a 30% payout ratio.

COMMENT
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

Why are industries like this going down? No one really knows. He has been using an ETF IYZ-, which is a more comprehensive, broad-based exposure to telecom in the US. It is cheap relative to the markets over the last year or two. This stock has been a perennial under performer.

US’s largest cell phone provider. He likes the sector. Growth in North American wireless has slowed down quite a bit. We are reaching a relatively high level of penetration, and there is not going to be as much growth as there has been over the last 10 years. However, these companies continue to generate a lot of free cash flow. They are great businesses, and he likes to buy the market leader in this type of business. From his perspective, this company has the best network, so they get the highest value customers.

COMMENT
Verizon Communications (VZ-N)

The only reason to buy this is because of its very high dividend. After 20 years, you are back where you started with this, but all along the way you have collected a good dividend. This company has some massive issues, because the costs for cell phone usage keeps coming down, and that is not a good model when your revenues keep coming down. Their debt was downgraded and is now rated as a BBB. The dividend is safe now, but someday you worry whether that will continue. He likes dividends, but he also likes dividend increases.
